Transcript of Building Character and Trust in the Classroom

Building Character and Trust Drive Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3 Core Teach for America impresses upon new teachers the importance of:
Beginning with a shared academic vision
Carefully selecting messages
Reinforcing messages over time Technique 43
Positive Framing Teachers have the responsibility of building trust. Trust is an imperative in the classroom and can be built using a number of techniques. Building Trust Positive Framing:

Building trust begins on day one. A teacher can begin by using "Positive Framing" (Lemov, 2010)
Teachers can:

Live in the now
assume the best
allow anonymity (correct entire class even when one is not on track)
build momentum
challenge students
talk expectation & aspiration

Example: "Check yourself to make sure you've done exactly what I've asked." (Lemov, 2012) Using the technique "Warm/Strict", teachers carefully choose their messages, while upholding expectations of students. In this technique, teachers

explain expectations
distinguish between behavior and people
demonstrate that consequences are temporary
quickly get over it (so the student can, too)

"Because I care about you, you must serve the consequence for being late." (Lemov, 2012) Precise Praise can be used to reinforce messages over time. Using this technique involves

acknowledging met expectations
using public praise sparingly
praising when expectations are exceeded
reinforcing action, skills, and behavior
maintaining sincerity and honesty

Examples of this include:
"I see lots of hands. The left side of the room is really with it!" (Lemov, 2012) in the classroom Technique 45 Warm/Strict References "Classroom management and culture." (2011). Retrieved from http://teachingasleadership.org/sites/default/files/Related-Readings/CMC_2011.pdf
